Abstract / Description of output
This article addresses the question of how human rights practitioners know about harm. In particular, what forms of torture and ill-treatment are made legible through human rights documentation? We argue human rights documentation techniques can systematically under perceive the extent of torture and ill-treatment among people living in poverty. The article is based on research in Kenya, Bangladesh, and Nepal, and sets out five key predispositions in documentation techniques that result in implicit discrimination.
FingerprintDive into the research topics of 'Torture and ill-treatment under perceived: Human rights documentation and the poor'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
